    Castle in 2015?

    So I have no idea where I read or heard this, but a while ago I heard Sleeping Beauty Castle was going to be torn down and rebuilt in 2015 because it was built with wood in 1954 and termites have gotten to it and they want to rebuild it with concrete like Hong Kong? Anyone know if this is true or not?

    I doubt that will happen, take an example of Knott's Ghost Town which has been there since the 1940s I believe. Every structure in CA has been built with wood and some concrete because it's a safety issue from earthquakes that we normally get.

    I'm pretty sure Sleeping Beauty Castle is mostly (if not all) concrete and fiberglass...

    That's right I forgot about fiberglass.

    Maybe if it was in the condition it was five years ago but since 2004/2005 it's been refurbished.

    A good portion of the Castle was made out of wood while the turrets and other adornments of the castle were made of fiberglass.

    But I don't see it being torn down - at least not for a looooong while; it is the landmark of Disneyland and was completely refurbished in 2004/2005 for the 50th Anniversary. If anything, what with the added walk through that came in last year (I'm sure enhancements/fixes were made to the interior of the castle to prepare it again for guests), it is in better shape than ever before!

    Maybe another 50+ years down the road we can talk, but, until then, I think we have nothing to fear about it being demolished.

    I don't think the castle will be torn down. If it is I will be very mad at Disneyland and sleep on top of the castle so they can't tear it down!! They just can't tear down Walt's original creation. It would be tragic...

    I doubt the Imagineering team would have bothered refurbing the walkthrough attraction if they knew the castle would have to be completely rebuilt soon after?

    DESTROY INNOVENTIONS! I used to love Innoventions when I went inside it during my trips during the 50th anniversary. But when I went inside of it in May, it was terrible. Destroy it and build a Mission: Space type of attraction.
